The female vision describes what is unique about how women perceive their world at work and offers strong research support for how this uniqueness can benefit women as well as organizations. This course will unpack what is involved in the differences between the typical male and female vision, how they impact one another, and how women can capitalize on their unique vision to benefit their leadership and become a considerable asset to any organization.
After completing this course, you should be able to:

- Consequences of Dismissing What Women See
- Complementary Capabilities

Profiting from the Female Vision
While women often recognize their vision is different than their male colleagues or the traditional expectations at work, acting on that different vision can be challenging. In order to bring your voice to your unique vision, it is important to be able to articulate the differences that make your vision useful, surround yourself with a strong and diverse network, and build the skills necessary to carry out your vision. This module will bring together the research on the differences found in how women experience and perceive their environments differently in the workplace and offer a skillset for bringing your unique vision to life.
